Among Barack Obama’s most toxic legacies is his campaign to shrink America’s prison population by turning loose many thousands of convicted felons. Watch for his already record-setting numbers of prisoners granted clemency, pardons or commuted sentences to grow even larger in the remaining weeks of this presidency.
Surely though, even a Commander-in-Chief capable of such reckless disregard for public safety would not release one of the nation’s most notorious, murderous and unrepentant terrorists? Unfortunately, it appears Mr. Obama is actively considering doing just that, by commuting the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera, a leader of the Puerto Rican terror group known as the FALN.
Fortunately, dozens of family members of Lopez Rivera’s victims and retired law enforcement personnel involved with his case wrote the President yesterday, strongly recommending against unleashing this dangerous criminal on our people. They speak for all of us.
